Tomorrow, July 4, 2016, Duke Asidere’s work Mental Space opens to the public, showing till September 15, 2016, at the Wheatbaker , Ikoyi, Lagos.
Showcasing 38 paintings on paper and canvas, some of the works, according to Curator, Sandra Mbanefo Obiago, reveal an uninhibited intellectual reflecting on critical issues in society; his art celebrates the best of humanity, while teasing and warning with unapologetic dexterity.
"Mental Space is Asidere’s external response to an internal, multi-layered landscape of deep thought, questions, and critique,” explains Obiago, the exhibition curator. “Through his drawings he challenges us to reflect on a constantly changing political context, in which he highlights the crazy and controversial excesses in our lives with bold, often humorous poignancy.”
